The ‘Lia Fáil’-Stone Of Destiny-on The Hill Of The High Kings at TARA, has stood unmolested and venerated as a symbol of Ireland’s great Pagan Past for ‘Tens’ of generations. Why now, but mindfully in this seemingly valueless and empty/lost generation, would this wonton and senseless act be carried out? It defies reason…except, and I must say this, so little of Irish History is taught or respected today…and so many refugees have come here (Sent here by EU Policies) only to participate in their own ‘needs’ without a care regarding Irish Heritage….that an Era of ‘greed’ and ‘entitlement’ has taken the place of honor & respect for the indigenous population and its values.
Mind you…in today’s world scenes…it could also have been perpetrated/done by Locals as well. This is what ‘we’ have become. Sad.
My family, our friends, relatives, and many like us over only recent years…have visited, filmed, an touched (and were touched by) the revered places of our past at TARA. We stood in front of the Lia Fáil, or placed our hands on it hoping to pick up what vibrations/Psychometry we could and visualized how that ‘site’ at TARA was used and thought of by our ‘Ancients’. I also did ‘Sweeps Fox Radio Shows’ from there, hoping to stop the ‘MOTORWAY’ destruction/desecration of the site and valley. It was…and is…a ‘Special Place’ and one to be preserved for all the next generations that follow.

According to legend, it served as the coronation stone for the high kings.
Minister for Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht Jimmy Deenihan has confirmed the granite Lia Fáil, which is Irish for Stone of Destiny, appeared to have been damaged last weekend.
An archaeologist from the National Monuments Service examined the stone and concluded that it had been struck - possibly with a hammer - at 11 places, on all four of its faces.
Fragments of the standing stone have been removed and gardaí are investigating.
Describing it as "extremely important" monument, Minister Deenihan said the stone was associated with the inauguration rites for the Kings of Tara and featured extensively in ancient texts.
"Vandalizm, by definition, is a mindless act. I condemn in the strongest terms the damage that has been caused to this monument," he said.
Located about 50km northwest of Dublin, Tara was the focus of political and religious life in pagan Ireland.
Mythology gives Tara (from the Gaelic "Teamhair", or lofty place) an exalted status as the top royal site in Ireland and there are many national monuments in the area.

-Just got a call from LMFM-
I will be doing an interview about the ‘Arms Around The Mound’ event at 12.15 on Monday (18 June 2012). Hopefully that will get people up to the Hill. If you can’t locate it on your radio you can listen to the live show at this link-below:
